TANZANIA Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA) workers have stuck to their guns and vowed not to resume work until all of their demands are met.
On Wednesday marked the tenth day since they stopped work and there were no signs of any end in sight as workers through their association, Tanzania Railway Workers Union (TRAWU), Dar es Salaam branch insisted that no one was ready to go back to work.
On Tuesday, Tanzania injected 1.6bn/- to TAZARA accounts to settle outstanding salaries. However, the workers said the amount was only enough for two months, February and March while April will remain unpaid.
The workers were demanding payment of the last three months' salaries and assurance of future payments as well as giving back autonomy to regional offices. 'Daily News' survey yesterday at TAZARA offices found workers sitting in groups, all saying that they are not ready to resume work prior to their demands being met.
